Why The Warriors Are Unhappy With Kendrick Perkins

Golden State Warriors Western Conference Champions

It was also eerily similar to a shot Durant made previous year in Cleveland to give Golden State a 3-0 series lead on the way to a title in 5 games. But one of the misses was on objective. The Cavaliers kept him to 11 points on 3-of-16 shooting, leaving Durant to pick up the slack.

He logged another triple-double with 33 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Wednesday's Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the host Cleveland Cavaliers, coach Steve Kerr told reporters. The Cavaliers opted to trap Curry from the opening tip, and the Warriors countered by working the ball into Durant at the midpost and letting him go to work one-on-one. They got a little of both.

For a Toronto-based sports writer, it is an odd feeling to come to Cleveland and see the home team as heavy underdogs. Durant continuously made timely, momentum-stopping shots.

The Raptors' oh-fer here doesn't even quite explain the level of dominance.

"That margin for error is so little, so thin against them, I think in some cases you have to be flawless", Love said.

"It was a big shot for them, kind of like it was past year", Lue said.

Amazon's Going to Start Showing Premier League Football From Next Year
The Premier League is the richest in Europe, according to a report published this week by Deloitte. The Premier League's last deal, agreed in 2015 and running until 2019, was worth £5.14bn.

"There's going to be nights like this for all of them". And with Golden State already halfway to the four wins needed for another National Basketball Association title, his presence will make this comeback attempt by the Cavaliers in this series only more challenging. The rims are supposed to be the same, but the results are quite different.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue could only marvel at the similar circumstances. He was like, 'What you on?' and I'm like, 'What you mean what I'm on?' I'm sitting over here. "You play more games at home than you do on the road as far as in certain arenas".

Playing at home for the first time in nearly two weeks, the Cavaliers jumped on Golden State early - opening up 12-point leads in both the first and second quarters.

The Cavaliers quickly established the lead in the game's opening minutes, scoring on their first five possessions, which included back-to-back 3-pointers by Kevin Love and J.R. Smith to open the game.

Those shots at the rim made up for the fact that Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson were off their game, combining to shoot 7-of-27 overall and 3-of-15 from three.

It was unclear, however, whether Iguodala can join Golden State's active roster in time for Game 3 at Cleveland on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila).

But with the outcome in the balance, Curry drained two crucial attempts in the closing three minutes - a stumbling layup and an enormous unguarded 3-pointer - as well as a dish to a cutting Draymond Green to polish off the Cavs with 25 seconds left. Cleveland feeds off the thunder of their crowd, where they had won eight straight in the playoffs after dropping Game 1 of their first-round series with the Indiana Pacers, and the speakers in this three-tier arena downtown boomed.
